Glyde House

Glyde House




Red Hippo - Peadar Long, Daz Jones and Simon Chantler, a stunning mix of sousaphone, Irish whistles, saxophones and strings - are a truly unique trio. They combine music from different genres to create compositions which take the listener on instrumental journeys with a respectful nod towards The Penguin Cafe Orchestra, Bellowhead, Filafolket and The Dirty Dozen Brass Band, and yet don’t sound like any of them.The differing styles are truly inter-woven into a fascinating musical form: Red Hippo’s music is deceptively intelligent, yet utterly accessible.

Red Hippo have appeared at many music and folk festivals, including Sidmouth. They have also supported The Oysterband, LAU, Andy Irvine, O’Hooley and Tidow, and Kan.

Support tonight from Pete Ivatts with his sensitive, often poignant, original compositions, sometimes laced with gentle humour.
